by Pinchas ZukermanVIOLINIST, FORMER NACO CONDUCTOR / MUSIC DIRECTORI have known Marc Parizeau since about 1999, from theearly days of my music directorship with the NAC Orchestrain Ottawa. I first met him through a recommendation fromNY producer Philip Traugott. I was unhappy with thesound pickup in the concert hall for our archive recordingsdue to the new ACS system, and he helped us figure it out. Since then, we have done much work together. Marc wasnominated for a 2003 JUNO AWARD for a recording he did with me and the members from the NAC Orchestra; it was for Best Chamber Music Performance. Also, at my request, he recorded a special concert by my chamber group, theZukerman ChamberPlayers in March 2007. Marc has since recorded my latest 2 CDs, one in November 2014 and the last one in November 2015.I think very highly of Marc’s abilities and recording engineering, and trust him implicitly. by Maurizio OrtolaniNew Media Producer, NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE (MIFI blog): Paz dispensing wisdom...we had the good fortune to spend a morning workshopping our podcast recording techniques with Marc Parizeau (Paz to his friends), a senior audio engineer at CBC Radio and independent producer andengineer here in the Ottawa area. I think we’ve benifitedtremendously from his solid “old skool” approach to mic choice, positioning, recording levels and the like....We’re itching to put our new, fine-tuned techniquesto use in our continuous quest to raise the baron our NAC podcasts.by Malcolm HamiltonExecutive Producer, On the Road Again, CBC TELEVISION Sent: Friday, January 26, 2007 11:19 AM“Hi Marc,Our last day here at On The Road Again (OTRA).A huge ‘Thank You’ for all the work you've done to make On The Road Again a better, more polished show.
